John Woollim, an American Quaker preacher, born in Northampton, Burlington co., N. J., in 1720, died in York, England, in 1773. At the age of 21 he became a speaker in the meetings of the society of Friends. In 1746, in company with Isaac Andrews, he made a tour in the back settlements of Virginia, and from that time continued at intervals to visit the societies of Friends in the different portions of the colonies, supporting himself by working as a tailor. In 1763 he visited the Indians on the Susquehanna, and about 1772 went to England. His published works include "Some Considerations on the Keeping of Negroes"(1753; part ii., 1762); "Considerations on Pure Wisdom and Human Policy, on Labor, on Schools, and on the Right Use of the Lord's outward Gifts " (1768); " Considerations on the True Harmony of Mankind" (1770); and "A Word of Remembrance and Caution to the Rich." " The Journal of the Life and Travels of John Woolman in the Service of the Gospel" (1775) has been many times reprinted (with an introduction by John G. Whittier, Boston, 1871).
